2005 Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Clos Sénéchal

Cabernet Franc more

6/27/2015 - Fitzi wrote: NR

My wife grabbed another bottle of this wine from the recesses of the cellar while I was out - I'd've waited a couple more years. I didn't taste it until the second night after opening, when it showed a fantastic ration of flavor intensity to alchol, with vivid, almost edgy acidity and tannins, some cedar, bit of stem wood, along some fruity unctiousness in the aromas and textures. A remarkable wine, surprisingly powerful. I sipped it, but it should shine especially brightly with a good, fatty red meat dish - rib-eye or lamb stew, say. Purchased on release for about $25-28.

Super vin d'une fraîcheur et savoureux, salivant et pourtant assez complexe. Et léger avec ça ! Et le prix ! Et pourquoi je n'en ai pas une caisse !

Good initial nose with white pepper, dry earth and mustiness. But faded with air time. Thin palate on this bottle with some dry earth, green pepper and herbal notes, but a largely empty mid and backpalate but for.

Silken, fragrant, pure and delicious. My only minor, nitpick is that I wish it had just a touch more depth. If Baudy Grezeaux had this texture it would be Cabernet Franc perfection.

That's just me being ornery. This really is fabulous and drinking so well if so young.

Another excellent "Trinch" vintage. Lots of fresh fruit -- blackcurrants and tart cherries-- coupled with savory base notes and well balanced acidity. Wonderful midweek wine. Drinking well now.

Cabernet Franc more

After reading COREMILL's perfect review, I can't think of an original thing to say so I'll pay him the compliment of repeating it: "The absolute perfect vin de soif bistro wine. Juicy red fruit, a hint of CB leafiness, minimal extraction but enough concentration to not be overly dominated by acidity bell pepper, pairs with just about everything on the table, goes down super easy. The sort of thing that makes you wish you were sitting at a table on a Paris sidewalk on a sunny Spring afternoon."

Very interesting take on Vouvray. Almost frizante, but not quite! Waves of golden delicious apples and granny smith apples. Almost cider like, which is quite amazing. Full bodied and well balanced, with medium length and very pleasant finish. I liked ir a lot.

After about an hour of air this shows a nose of good fruit, some nice herbal notes and a slight hint of wet clay and chalk. On the palate also fairly generous fruit, but still elegant. Noticable tannins, some herbs again, good chalky minerality, medium acids and slight spice. Medium lenght finish. An enjoyable experience now but will probably benefit from further cellaring.

Aromatics were there but palate was very tight and sour on opening. An hour in the decanter worked wonders. A beautiful showing. It's just opening back up and shows plenty of promise. It was very clean but not squeaky clean.

Transparent garnet. Generous penetrating nose of floral and blackberry, raw beef, and tar, with a hint of brett. The palate is a spicy, vinous mirror of the nose, bright and intense. The finish shows additional modest tannins and slight green pepper. Really lovely and totally fresh but mature CF. Enjoyed with sous vide rack of lamb.

2009 Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Franc de Pied

Cabernet Franc more

5/13/2015 - Keith Levenberg Likes this wine: 95 points

Tremendous performance out of this, easily the most impressive and also the most substantial Breton Franc de Pied I've had to date. I had previously viewed this bottling as a tier below the Baudry or Joguet FDPs but perhaps the vines have matured to the point where I should reassess (or maybe the wine itself is just maturing). This offers a powerful blast of complex aromatics right from the first sip, both earthy and savory and maybe even spicy, too. It's one of those wines where a lot of that personality moves into the background after a few minutes, so make sure you sample this one out of the gate instead of leaving it around to breathe all night. But from there the palate offers luscious fruit, significantly more concentrated and more layered than any prior vintages of this wine have been, with maybe a very fine bead of CO2 in there that you can barely notice through the fruit. You *can* get a sense through the fruit of some of the interesting things that were fleeting through those initial aromatics, savory root flavors and spice seasonings and what-not. But it's really the sense of power I find most impressive relative to prior vintages that were more in the camps of "elegant" or glou-glou. This is the kind of stuffing that makes you think it'll be virtually ageless and just coast forever on all that material, like the '59 Bordeauxs or something like that.

Spft, refreshing, good acidity and low alcohol. Kind of blueberry and grassy spiciness. Grows with a little air to gain more complexity. Will buy at least one more bottle to drink with summery lighter dishes.

beautiful. demands to be consumed in small sips, which unfold as they wash around the mouth. a big sip and all the detail is lost to the slightly gritty finish.

Tart, simple, and rounded out. Consistent with previous notes 20 months ago, though the V8/Worchester Sauce notes have been replaced by more developed cherry and raspberry notes. Short finish, but this is a perfect, juicy weeknight quaffer to enjoy with simple food. Drink now and over the next few years.
